Training courses in Scotland

We run a full programme of training in Glasgow and a number of courses in Dundee, Edinburgh and Inverness.

Our new 2019 / 20 Training and Publications brochure (April 2019 to March 2020) is available to view and download here. All the courses for 2019/2020 are available to book now.

We also offer in-house training to organisations in Scotland.

Level of course - it is important to chose the right level of course:

Basic level courses: for frontline workers who do not work in welfare rights but want to know about benefit issues relevant to their clients to give basic advice or refer on. 

Introductory level courses: for people new to benefit advice work or who have little or no experience of the subject covered by the course.

Standard level courses: for people with a working knowledge of the benefit system or the subject covered by the course. These are suitable for people wanting a refresher or to update skills or information.

Experienced level courses: for more experienced benefit advisers, who are confident about covering issues in more and sometimes complex detail.

In-house training – we can come to you

We can provide our courses in-house at your premises or a venue to suit you, to meet the training needs of your organisation.

Scottish National Standards (SNS)

Many of our courses cover skills and knowledge required to meet Scottish National Standards for Information and Advice Providers. For further details please see our Scottish National Standards page.
